Swaddling Baby Boys Group and Baby Girls Group Cut and Sew Ornaments or Favors




If you love our swaddling babies but don't have time to make the swaddling favors in our e-pattern but want to have something fun as a favor for your baby shower then you might like our easy cut and sew swaddling baby designs.

Just cut them out and easily sew them via the two methods outlined below.

Cut and Sew Finishing Instructions Per Piece

Additional Supplies Needed -Poly-fil, Sewing Thread, and Color Coordinating DMC Embroidery Floss For The Hanger For Each Piece.

1)  Cut the two pieces along the dotted lines.

2)  Place right sides together and sew 1/8” away from outer doll line leaving a small opening on the bottom for turning.

3)  Trim seam and clip edges.

4)  Turn right side out and stuff with poly-fil.

5)  Hand sew small opening closed with the sewing thread.

6)  Add a hanger to the top of the piece with 6 strands of the color coordinating DMC embroidery floss.





Alternative Method #1 For Blanket Stitch Finishing Each Piece Along The Edges:

Additional Supplies Needed - Warm and Natural or Batting, and Color Coordinating DMC Embroidery Floss For Each Piece

1)  Cut the two pieces along the dotted lines.

2)  Using the front doll piece as a guide cut two pieces out of warm and natural or batting.

3)  Place the two doll pieces wrong sides together and then insert  the warm and natural or batting pieces in between the two pieces and pin along the sides to hold.

4)  Trim the edges so the pieces and warm and natural or batting  outer edges are even.

5)  Blanket stitch  1/8” - 1/4” away from outer edges with 6 strands of color coordinating DMC embroidery floss.

6)  Add a hanger to the top of the piece with 6 strands of color coordinating DMC embroidery floss.
